Moms and Mentors
and mentors are empowered by the belief in themselves as capable and
loving parents, who strive to provide a nurturing life for all children.
Moms and mentors are resourceful to each other, enjoying the good times
while building strength and support for the troubled times. Building
connections between moms, mentors and others are the ties that bind
a caring community. Moms and Mentors believe that young parents and
their families deserve respect and friendship, access to parent information
and opportunities to build confidence as young parents.
and Mentors seek to establish and maintain trusting relationships
with young parents to share knowledge and experience around positive
parenting practices. Moms and Mentors aim to build confidence in young
parents by providing opportunities to participate in social gatherings
with other families and practice positive parenting skills.
and Mentors aim to create a supportive and accepting environment whereby
parents have opportunities to share a mutual interest in children and
promote self-esteem for themselves and their families.
and Mentors strengthen acceptance for young parents through a process
of bridging connections with members of the community including students,
teachers, social workers, nurses, doctors, business, church and political
representatives. Moms and Mentors strive to break down social barriers
